Love this idea Shannon, and your mix of product!
Thanks guys!! @sycorreale, they are Hampton Art stamps...
Super cut! Can you tell me where to find the stamps you used on the tags? i.e. Soon it will be Christmas Day, etc. Thanks for sharing.
this is such a great idea!! what a great way to preserve all of the wonderful cards!
What a great idea!!!! In years past I have spent hours doing albums with our Christmas card photos. I made one today with 2012 cards-just in time to be ready for 2013. It is so cute-almost identical to yours. thank you for your inspiration!!!!
Love this idea - especially the punched circles from cards on the front :)
Project - Holiday Album: Christmas Card Album
by Shannon Tidwell
I tackled the Holiday Theme Album a little different than most I think. I know myself…and I will never go back and finish an album. I stink at that and I have the unfinished albums to prove it! When I start a project it needs to have an end in sight because I won't come back to it. That's why I decided to make a Christmas Card Album.
I treasure the photo cards we get from friends and family at Christmas. It's so neat to see how much the kids have grown and how their families have grown. Not to mention seeing their creativity in their picture and card design.
It's a shame that the cards usually end up in a stack with me at a loss for what to do with them. I don't really want to cut them up. I knew I needed a simple design so I would follow it through and perhaps repeat it in years to come. I could even add to this album by adding in more chipboard dividers between the years. We'll see…but for now 2012 is done!
I used an oversized chipboard banner I had in my stash as the album cover & back. I punched holes in all the picture cards we had and bound it together with rings.
I added a few patterned paper dividers throughout just for fun. I used limited embellishments on those…just a few stamps and badges.
For the cover I punched circles from several regular Christmas cards we received, and combined those with punched circles from patterned paper, and circle stickers. I adhered all with pop dots because that's more fun.
You can also see that I included one of our cards. I used the pocket envelope as a place to tuck a little note.
